      Besides being a brilliant and gifted surgeon Dr. Samadi is a true gentleman. The care that my father received prior to his PC surgery, during the procedure itself, and now several years later has been nothing short of phenomenal. It is very rare that you find such great bedside manner from a world-renowned surgeon. He takes the time to listen to, and answer, every question you have. In a world or ordinary this man is truly extraordinary
      in New York, NY |
      His compassion & kindness complement the professionalism & excellence of this top robotic surgeon. Besides Dr. Samadi's skill his humility & genuine care for his patients is second to none. He is a fantastic doctor & human being. Never before have I come across a doctor who answers emails texts & phone calls from patients 24/7. In a world where it is all about profit Dr Samadi & his staff's approach is refreshing. Once you meet him you will know why he is the best surgeon in his field by far

      Dr. Samadi was arrogant, unhelpful, spent less than 5 minutes with us. He asked my husband the most stupid question "Why did you wait so long." We had been advised to take a wait and see attitude till the numbers changed. Unfortunately we chose him to do the surgery. He messed up on everything. He never followed up, nor did his office. Two years later and my husband is still both incontinent and impotent. So much for King Samadi.

      Dr Samadi is an outstanding doctor who is superior in his field. He is kind and caring. His knowledge gives you courage to fight cancer. He gives you confidence and supports his patients from the minute you come to the office through the operation to The recovery in a special wing and to the aftercare. He is the most wonderful Doctor ever. He is precise and works constantly to make sure he provides all that you need to beat the disease and recover. We are so grateful to this amazing man!

      We scheduled surgery for April 18. Then we're told that he doesn't take Medicare. They said I would get a call the next day with the fee. Late in the day I call and they say I still will get a call - no call. I call the next day and I'm told I will get a call that day - no call. I call the next and two messages. - no call back. The next day I ask to speak directly to dr samadi. I get a call in two minutes and soon after the biller calls me and gives me the fee which I can't afford.

      I am very pleased with my surgery results, Dr. Samadi, his staff and Lenox Hill Hospital. Dr. Samadi is a top urologist and robotic surgeon who is world renowned. He saved my life! He is also a fine gentleman who always has time to return my calls promptly and answered all my questions. You won't find a more skilled doctor and a very warm and caring person.

      Arrogant and obviously only interested in YOUR MONEY.

      After weeks of research, Dr. Samadi was my choice for robotic prostate surgery. I relied heavily on his experience, recommendations from other doctors and the research I did on the web. I also met with Dr. Samadi before making my decision. Now that he surgery is over, and my recovery "astonishing" (in the words of my friends and colleagues - and I don't disagree) I can recommend Dr. Samadi without hesitation.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
